Capella Resort Presents Flowers of St. Lucia

One of the perks of staying in Capella Marigot Bay Marina, is that marina guests are treated the same as those staying in the Resort... Including access to events and services.  One of the small extras the Resort does is their weekly "Plant Walk".  Murphy, the property's head gardener takes guests around the grounds and answers questions about the many beautiful things he grows.  His dedication to the cause is evident as is his well deserved pride.

These are my photos of the many beautiful flowers... sadly I don't remember the names of them all.

Cat Whisker!

That's some foot on that Begonia!


Murphy and his Crotons

So many Hibiscus! 
Another Croton

Love Apples
Ylang Ylang not so pretty to look at.. but take a whiff and fall in love

The Ylang-Ylang tree

Murphy took us into his potting shed
I attended two of Murphy's walks.  He is such a quiet, shy man and very soft-spoken.  Between that and his charming accent, it was fun trying to figure out what he was actually saying. I think if I live here for the rest of my life, the accents of the Islanders will never cease to delight me...  Murphy's soft melodious words were as beautiful as the Flowers of St. Lucia.
